Those interested in participating in the consultation can choose to submit a brief or respond to a questionnaire in the appendix of the Family Law Reform discussion paper. The discussion paper is available on the Government of New Brunswick website at the Citizen Engagement and Consultations webpage at www.gnb.ca until November 15, 2019.
